The Philadelphia Flyers and the Boston Bruins meet in NHL action from the TD Garden on Saturday night.
The Philadelphia Flyers will look to bounce back after a 5-4 loss to the Bruins on last time out. Travis Konecny and Kevin Hayes share the team-high with 7 points, with Konecny putting up a team-high 5 goals while Hayes has 5 assists. Jakub Voracek has 5 assists as well as part of his 6 points so far while James van Riemsdyk has 3 goals and 2 assists for his 5 points. Nolan Patrick, Claude Giroux and Jacob Farabee each have 4 points with Patrick and Farabee each posting a goal and 3 assists while Giroux has 4 assists. Carter Hart has a 2-1 record in goal, giving up 13 goals on 132 shots against while Brian Elliott has a 1.31 GAA with 2 goals given up on 55 shots against.
The Boston Bruins will look to build on their win over Philadelphia to keep the ball rolling. Brad Marchand leads the B’s with 4 points coming on a goal and 3 assists while David Krejci, Nick Ritchie and Patrice Bergeron each have 3 ponits with Krejci logging 3 assists while Ritchie has 2 goals with an assist and Bergeron has a goal and 2 assists with a team-high 19 shots on goal this season. Tuukka Rask has a 2-1 record with a 2.23 GAA with 7 goals allowed on 65 shots against while Jaroslav Halak has a 1.85 GAA with an 0-1 record with 2 goals against and 31 shots against this season.
Philadelphia is 9-3 in their last 12 road games and 22-9 in their last 31 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the Eastern Conference. Boston is 2-6 in their last 8 games overall and 2-5 in their last 7 games as a home favorite while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Philadelphia is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
I thought the last game was the perfect buy low spot for the Bruins and they came in, but now after one win they’re back up to these steeper price tag which I’m really not into buying. The Flyers have been pretty good early on and we just have to stay on the value while we still can. I’ll take a shot with Philadelphia and the plus money here.
